THE CONCENTRATION, COMPOSITION, AND OTHER ASPECTS OF AMINO ACIDS PRESENT IN THE CENOZOIC FORMATIONS OF JAPAN ARE CLARIFIED. THE SAMPLES USED WERE MAINLY MUDDY SAMPLES, COLLECTED FROM REPRESENTATIVE CENOZOIC FORMATIONS. VARIOUS CONCLUSIONS WERE DRAWN: (1) AMINO ACID CONCENTRATION DIMINISHES AS THE GEOLOGICAL AGE OF THE FORMATION GETS OLDER, (2) AMINO ACID CONCENTRATION IS HIGH IN CLAYEY AND LOW IN SANDY SEDIMENTS, (3) NINETEEN KINDS OF AMINO ACIDS WERE DETECTED, 17 OF WHICH WERE ALPHA-AMINO...

The 10-m optical reflector and an array of phototubes are used to extend the optical measurements beyond the present limit achieved by the Vidicon system. The first detection of optical meteors with M sub v = 12 is reported. It is hoped that this system can be used to determine intermediate points in the meteor frequency mass curve for sporadic meteors and to study in detail the faint components of meteor showers. Preliminary observations made on three nights in September 1974 are presented. Topics: HYDRAZINES, NITROGEN, SPACECRAFT ENVIRONMENTS, CABIN ATMOSPHERES, ENVIRONMENTAL ENGINEERING, LIFE...
THE DIRECTION OF THE MAGNETIC MOMENT OF THE TWO PERMANENT MAGNETS IN THE ESRO-1 SATELLITE WAS DETERMINED BASED ON MEASUREMENTS OF THE THREE COMPONENTS OF THE MAGNETIC FIELD AT VARIOUS POINTS.

The hierarchical segmentation (HSEG) algorithm is a hybrid of hierarchical step-wise optimization and constrained spectral clustering that produces a hierarchical set of image segmentations. This segmentation hierarchy organizes image data in a manner that makes the image's information content more accessible for analysis by enabling region-based analysis. This paper discusses data analysis with HSEG and describes several measures of region characteristics that may be useful analyzing...

SCATTERING OF CHARGED PARTICLES BY TURBULENT PULSATION OF AN ELECTRIC FIELD WHICH LEAS TO EFFECTIVE HEATING OF PLASMA WAS INVESTIGATED. THE EXPERIMENTS SHOWED THAT , DURING TURBULENT HEATING OF PLASMA BY FAST MAGNETO-ACOUSTIC WAVES, PREFERENTIAL HEATING OF IONS WAS CORRELATED WITH SMALL AMPLITUDES, WHILE AT LARGE AMPLITUDES BOTH ELECTRONS AND IONS WERE HEATED. THE PLASMA WAS CREATED BY 18-MICROSECOND PULSE DISCHARGES WITH OSCILLATING ELECTRONS IN HYDROGEN. MEASUREMENT OF THE LONGITUDINAL...

A method and an associated digital computer program for evaluating the vibrational characteristics of large liquid-filled rigid wall tanks of general shape are presented. A solution procedure was developed in which slosh modes and frequencies are computed for systems mathematically modeled as assemblages of liquid finite elements. To retain sparsity in the assembled system mass and stiffness matrices, a compressible liquid element formulation was incorporated in the program. The approach taken...
